    Horde battles seem like the sort of thing that can cause multiple game overs. Really not looking forward to this. :\

    Horde battle confirms that the system supports six Pokémon on the battlefield at once, which is probably the reason for the five number. This means that Triple and Rotation battle is likely returning.

    Both new types seem neat, but would like to learn more about it.

    I think it'd be kinda nice if the new Sky Battles involved motorbikes...

    Sky Battles is fun. Wonder if you can use Pokemon amie to make an operation on Palpitoad to give it wings?

    I can't think the horde battles will be too hard just because I couldn't see them making something so daunting. Puts an uneven emphasis on moves that hit multiple opponents in battle, but whatever. Keep one of those on a handful of your team members.

    I think they may be more in game events than just casual like all other wild pokemon encounters, but here's hoping for Audino hordes. Hordes and hordes of Audino.

    This suggests a new style of battling, done in the air. Also indicating Sky Routes or something of the sort.

    Another E3 image, here, suggests that there may be a new type of battling where you fight off multiple Pokemon at once with one. I would assume these to be wild.

    Please give your thoughts.
    We would need flying types,indicating a new type of battling

    Here's some move that may or may not have drastic effects in sky battles: Gravity, Fly, Sky Drop, Thunder (100% accuracy?!?!?)

    What about weather effects? Will they be more prominent, since it's in the sky?

    Horde battles are definitely going to require people to think of different strategies, but I don't think it's going to be as difficult as it may seem at face value. For one, the Pokemon all seem to be at least half the level of yours. Second, assuming all the Pokemon take equal damage from a move that can hit multiple pokemon (as in double/triple battles now), one or two surf attacks would easily wipe them all out.

    I think catching Pokemon in horde battles is going to very tough though (assuming the same rule applies in double wild encounters), and I'm looking forward to that challenge.

    How do Sky battles actually differ from regular battles other than the camera angles and restriction of the type of Pokemon that could be used?

    That screenshot looks like a nightmare. 4 Tauros and a Miltank are the last Pokemon I want to encounter in a Horde battle. Even if they are lower-leveled than our Pokemon, it still seems horribly unbalanced. I can only hope that they're not just random encounters.

    Yeah, me too. I want the ability to encounter Horde battles to be toggled, so you don't have to encounter them.
    And, everywhere, Nuzlockers sigh in relief.
